What to expect

Teaching for me has always been much more than just mechanical “coaching” of violin playing technology. Every student, even the youngest one, is first of all a person, a musician. And I always tried to treat my students as junior colleagues, not “teaching” them something, but helping them to understand better such an all-encompassing world as music is.
Should music lessons be boring? Never! But, on the other hand, ‘fun’ does not always mean ‘progress’. Learning something does not mean being bored, learning is, first of all, development. Music is a very important part of culture and personality, because it is all around us. And when a student achieves success in learning music, he thereby grows as a person. It is very important to find a balance between the student's interest in classes and the growth of his skills. This is the basic principles of my unique 'Sensible Violin Playing System'.
